Taylored Expressions: New Blender Brushes!

Super itty bitty big news over atย  Taylored Expressions today–there are NEW Bitty Blender Brushes and they are oh so very cute–they are BITTY!! AND a new White Brush and a Black Brush! Is our collection complete? I’m not sure ๐Ÿคฃ ! ๐Ÿ™‚

First up today, I am using the new Rainbow Repeat. I love this new stencil!! eeeeek! The possibilities! I blended on Cupcake, Peaches n’ Cream, Granny Smith, and Sprinkles. Once I blended all those on with the new brushes, I came back and filled in the rest with Lemon Meringue.

I thought it would be fun to use the little unicorn from the Little Critters set. I colored them with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out. This sentiment is from this set too. I white heat embossed it and strung it across a frame from the Frame in Frame 2 set.

Next up, I used the new Delightful Daisy stencil. Using the new small brushes, it is fairly quick and easy to ink up the flowers individually. I didn’t mask off anything. Instead, I used complimentary colors in case there was any cross contamination.

I figured this would be perfect for a Mom card–I would use this card for Mother’s Day, but I think it can be used any time as well. โค

The sentiment is from the Mini Strips – You’re the Best set. I die cut that with the Asymmetrical Mini Strips die. I used the On the Block -Mom stamp and die. For the background, I used both the Scalloped Circle Masking stencil and the Masking Stencil Circles stencil, in conjunction with the new Delightful Daisy stencil.

I wanted to make one more card with the Rainbow Repeat Stencil. This one I used the Rainbow Repeat Stencilย in conjunction with the Square Masking Stencil. AND…. are you sitting down? I dropped a hint of purple in there with the Eggplant. Who am I?

I thought this turned out fun adding this sentiment from the Simple Strips-Crafty set. I so enjoy that set! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I just got a bunch of my Simple Strips organized in their Simple Strips storage containers over the weekend. So happy to have them easily accessible!

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Taylored Expressions: Butterfly Wishes + Buttoned Up Kids

Today, there are two fun new Kits available over atย  Taylored Expressions. There is the new Butterfly Wishes (which I LOVE) and the new Buttoned Up Kids Kit, which my son LOVED! We were both loving life here with these kits.

First up, there is the Butterfly Wishes kit which I cannot say how fun it is to use the stencils alone in the kits! ๐Ÿ™‚

And don’t even get me started on the stickers/seals!! But I digress…

Anywho–so as long as I was stenciling away, I thought it would be smart to make a few panels. Which turned into about six total, but I only finished four here. So first, you stamp the little butterfly bodies and antennae on your panel. This part of the kit is called: Butterflies Stamp & Stencil Combo.

On the white panels, I used Mushroom ink and on the Toffee panels I used Sugar Cube ink for their bodies and antennae. Then it is very easy to line up the butterfly wings to the bodies because the stencils are etched, creating an extra visual. The first layering stencil has either the top or bottom of the butterflies wings and then the second has the other half. So you can create different gradients or use different colors entirely on the different parts of the butterflies! This is quite fun because the endless possibilities and combos! Gah! โค

On the Toffee panels, I first laid down a layer of Sugar Cube before applying the color inks. This allows the color inks to sit atop the Sugar Cube and I think creates a more vibrant color ending.

I wasn’t super careful to line up my stencils overtop of it either, so you can see the Sugar Cube poking out there underneath, which I actually wanted. I might even offset it more next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love using a rainbow of colors to create these blends too! I used the Frame in Frame 2 dies to cut them all out.

AND there is a whole other stamp set, Clearly Crafty Butterfly Wishes stamp set, is meant to add even more detail to these cutie little butterflies. AND dies for the Butterflies: Butterflies die collection.ย I however, didn’t even use them on these cards and they are still delightful. Be sure to check out the rest of the Creative Team‘s projects to see how lovely projects are adding those detailed stamps.

The sentiments in the Clearly Crafty Sweet Sentiments set are all included in the kit as well. Perfect array for making card sets! I just heat embossed mine on vellum before stitching them on.

Next up, I have a fun little kit designed with kids in mind: Buttoned Up Kid’s Kit. My son, who is ten years old now (correction: ten and a HALF), doesn’t have the threshold that he used to with cardmaking. We’d spend several hours making things. Now, his attention span isn’t as long to hang with Mom. Ha! So this card kit is PERFECT for him!

He made these four cards quite quickly. If you have kiddos that have longevity, think of all the fun little details you can add to these as well! โค

His favorite part was putting the buttons on. The kit includes Glue Dots and that makes it super easy to adhere the buttons so they don’t go anywhere.ย  You just give the Glue Dots a good rub over and the friction/heat from your finger adheres the dot to the button’s surface well.

One can even put the buttons as the centers in the flowers, but my son decided that flowers don’t get buttons. haaaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

This one above was his favorite and he brought it to his teacher the very next day! These are perfect for anyone, anytime. Teacher Appreciation, a Coach, a friend, a caregiver, Grandparents, etc. etc.! And there are plenty in the kit to make several cards!

He loves to use Mom’s Copic Markers! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think we both loved this kit because it makes it so easy to create these cards. We didn’t even need to be in my craft area to access a bunch of supplies, because everything we used was in the kit already (except the MISTI and the handful of markers he chose, of course.) I’m keeping the kit all together so we can just pull the whole thing out to create more when we need them.

Apparently, the more is more with regards to adding buttons…. add ALLLLLL the buttons! haaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

We might need to get some more cards to make! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m thinking this would make a sweet birthday gift for a little creative friend too. โค

Goodness, I adore this kit. Streamlines cardmaking for kids and encourages giving! And THESE STICKERS? YES, please! ๐Ÿ™‚

Such fun we had! The Kid’s Kit is so reasonably priced and all set to grab-n-go for kids to take with them! Be sure to grab the Hip Hip Hooray stamp set if you need that too–sold separately.

Here are all the details with my supplies below:

Taylored Expressions: Mom Release!

We are celebrating all the Moms over atย  Taylored Expressions today. It’s a lovely release that can be used for many occasions AND people, even other than Mom. โค

First up today, I am using the new Dear Mom and new Gathered Greenery.ย  The boldness of this font and the size of this sentiment lends itself to a lot of different techniques! For this card, I kept it pretty simple stamping the background, color blending, and then embossing the sentiment over it.

I did use sort of an ombre inking technique on the Gathered Greenery background while stamping it. I used all the colors on the stamp, as I learned that would give me the look I wanted vs. stamping it all in one color. It just takes a little more patience and you want to be sure to put your yellow ink on first etc.

I thought this turned out quite happy! And the funny part is inside…


Next up, we have Pretty Posies. I actually used this flower upside down and made it into a cone flower vs. a posie! ha! How’s that for stretching your supplies?

For the background, I used the Mini Slim Cable Knit stencil, blending on Lemon Meringue, Pineapple, Grannie Smith and a touch of Cilantro!

Lastly, I wanted to try the kissing technique with the bold font of the Dear Mom, in combination with the new Gathered Greenery. It worked out so well!

First I stamped the Dear Mom in all the different colored inks in a solid. Then, once again, I inked the Gathered Greenery with multiple inks to create a rainbow sherbet background.

The last color I used was Honey and I didn’t blend it super well, but I went with it all anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Perfect Parent sentiments are too funny for the inside (or outside) of the cards!

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Taylored Expressions: Kit Exclusives a la carte!

It’s a fun little release over atย  Taylored Expressions today. Some of the kit exclusives are now made available individually and today you can order them!ย 

For my card below, I used the Heart Fence from the Gnome kit! The Gnome kits was a fave of mine and psssst you can also order the Gnomes today! ๐Ÿ™‚

I adore this little Heart Fence die and I thought with Mother’s day ahead soon, this would be entertaining. :)๐Ÿ˜Š

This little chickie is from the Sarcasti-chicklets Set. I just fussy cut the little sentiment bubbles super quick and easy. They all came together quickly because I stamped them on Pineapple cardstock and then just did a little bit of shading with Copic Markers.

I thought it would be fun to stamp another sentiment on the inside along with stenciling the Hearts from the Stencil Strips-Love set. The blue little textured background is done with the Pretty Petals stencil.

I had to add a little stitching over the top too. I love this card. It is both sweet and also sooooo true! ๐Ÿ™‚

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Fun Stamp Joy Exclusives! Now released…

This week is Stamp Joy atย  Taylored Expressions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Because of the current state of the universe, Stamp Joy has been taking place online. This is different, but also lovely because it means Stamp Joy is available to everyone who can join virtually (and if you sign up ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). The next Stamp Joy is actually later this week. If you signed up a little while back, you know all about it. If you didn’t get to sign up for this one, keep your eyes open for details on the next. Will it be in person? Online? It’s hard to guess.

Anywho–point being, there are products that are gifted as part of one’s registration to Stamp Joy, and today, Taylored Expressions is releasing the previous Stamp Joy goodies for everyone to be able to purchase them…or maybe you wanted to get a set and gift it to a stamping friend? Now is the time. ๐Ÿ™‚

For my card today, I used the Social Butterflies set. This set is simply delightful and I am looking forward to creating a card set with it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I had to make two! ๐Ÿ™‚

I especially love this textured stamp–I think this is fun to use on it’s own too!

And this next one, I simplified, but then decided to stitch the butterfly trails, complicating things. ha! I am not super skilled at stitching in whirley q’s.

And because I almost always have to use the Petite Scalloped Rectangle Stacklets, I used those here too. Naturally. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But the stitched little trails are kind of a fun and different detail too. ๐Ÿ™‚

These are so simple to create and all the options you can mix up so easily makes it that much better! ๐Ÿ™‚

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Both Social Butterflies Cards:

Masking Stencil Essentials Release from TE

This is another great release overย  at Taylored Expressions today! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s one of those releases which is awesome because it contains a lot of the essentail things we need for cardmaking all the things! These are all available atย  Taylored Expressions today!

First up, we have the Scalloped Circles Masking Stencils! I love all the scallops, in case you haven’t noticed. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I actually used double stencils on this. First I used the new Scalloped Circle Masking Stencil and then after I laid down a basic level of ink, I overlapped the Hot Spots stencil. I kept the Hot Spots in place using a piece of tape, like a book flap just to make it easier and create a cohesive background that I didn’t need to shift twice, like I did with the Scalloped Circle. I’m sure that makes zero sense, but if you were to try this, you’ll probably figure it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

This little Gus is from the Gus and Gertie set (+ coordinating Gus & Gertie dies)ย  and the sentiments are from the Building Blocks: Be Bright set. I love how this fun card turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚ Gus is one of my faves.

Next up, this optical illusion card. If it wasn’t a sentiment strip, this would be a one layer card! And I keep thinking it isn’t. ha!ย  But it is!ย  For this, I used the new Rectangle Scalloped Frame Masking Stencil and it made this awesome dimensional look with just the stencil.

I used two of the Petite Scallop Rectangle stencils together, blending in some Toffee ink. After that, leaving the “frame” I created with the two stencils, I stamped the Wood Plank Background stamp with Chocolate Truffle and Mocha over top. After that was all set, I left the stencil on and blended in the background with the different colors before stamping the Spring Stems. I wish I had added a little darker ink around the top and sides to create that same dimensional look that is created at the bottom, but live and learn. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have to remember this technique, especially for cards that need to be mailed. It creates dimension without adding bulk. The Simple Strip sentiment is from the Simple Strips-Sympathy set.

Next up, there is a new die set which adds a great detail to your cards. These are the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets and come in different shapes. For all these cards below, I used the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets. But there are also Diagonal Stitch Square Stacklets in this release!

For this card, I also used an all time fave, the Over the Rainbow die in conjunction with the Rainbow Cloud Duo dies. I love the simple and subtle detail theseย  Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets add so easily.

I also needed a handful of Thank You cards this month, so I created all of these with the previously released Modernย  Mosaic Stencil (using Pineapple, Lemon and Earl Gray on one and Mint Julep, Pea Pod and Cilantro on the other.)

These came together pretty quick overall and I have already used most of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course, the Simple Strips-Thank You set is the perfect fit along with the Big Thanks set.

I thought I had a favorite combo, but in the end, I like both of these scenarios equally. ๐Ÿ™‚

I only wish I had doubled my batch. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank You cards are the cards I send most and I love having them ready to go so I can be more timely. I don’t always succeed, but I try! ๐Ÿ™‚

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Taylored Expressions Release

There is some fun over at Taylored Expressions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of the fun exclusives Taylored Expressions gives away with qualifying purchases are available to purchase from Taylored Expressions today! Personally, I was super excited to get my inky fingers on them myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I thought I’m sharing this fun little card with Gus & Gertie pulling this hilarious sign which I stamped from the set Handmade Humor. I love this fun set OH SO MUCH!!

I colored the little car with Copic Markers and used the two stencils layered to create a fun background.

And then I stamped up a pile of envelopes so they are ready to send out too!

Next up, I have these colorful cards using the Big Thanks stamp set. I used this in conjunction with the previously released Create in Color Background.

I colored these pencils with Copic Markers and the stamps in the Big Thanks set fit perfectly inside the pencils.

I am looking forward to using these great Thank You cards!

Love these pencils and it worked swimmingly together!

Next up, I have the Simple Strips Thanks–I have used these dozes of times already!! Gah so good!

I thought these would be fun with the Framed Script-Hello. I should have made a bunch more of these too because I cannot have enough of them on hand to send.

I am a fan of color blocking before die cutting to create simple but popping colors.

I added a few clear drops around the words.

Super simple to make and I love how they turned out.

I hope you enjoy seeing all the new productsย  available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Taylored Expressions: Easter Release

Today is a Hoppyย  Day over at Taylored Expressions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Spring is coming and there is a new release from Taylored Expressions today! Let’s Hop to it, shall we?

First up, I thought I’d share this card using the newย  Bunch of Bunnies and Oh Hoppy Day! Eeeeep these cute littleย  Bunch of Bunnies that are shaped wood bunnies are just the cutest and I want to put them on all the things for Easter!

For this card, I stenciled on the bunny Oh Hoppy Day background quite simply using Sugar Cube ink. I painted the Bunch of Bunnies just using white acrylic paint. After that, I decided which sentiment I wanted to use from the Mini Strips: Easter and paired it with a bunny of many colors (using Copic Markers for the stripes) to complete the sentiment. โค

I would send this card out any time of year, not just at Easter. ๐Ÿ™‚ The little Pom Pom tails though–too cute!

Next up,ย  I have the new Jesus Script die with the Jesus Script backer die. I paired this with the sweet Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate (which I feel I am going to be usingย  A LOT!) and a few little flowers from the Spring Wreath dies.

I even used Lavender Glaze for this card because it seemed the right thing to do with this sentiment.

The sentiment strip is from Simple Strips: Easter Blessings. This new Simple Strips is full of lovely sentiments to use this Easter.

Next up, I have the fun new Playful Plaid Background. I decided I would stamp and emboss it in white and the use the Stencil Strips-Clouds to create another layer to the background. I don’t really know how these ideas come to be as I am making things, but voila in the end, here they are! ๐Ÿ™‚ ha!

This new background is indeed playful and I can see using for a variety of occasions. Baby cards, winter cozy cards, well, pretty much anything!

I decided I wanted to use the Peep sentiment from theย  Mini Strips-Easter. And once you choose a Peep sentiment, what is one to do? Well, Peeps of course–aka The Little Bits Marshmallow Bunnies dies!ย  I love the iconic Peeps at Easter. And while I am not a super fan of eating them, per say, I do enjoy having one little yellow bunny Peep and biting off their ears.ย  shhhhh.ย  Oh for Peeps sake! ๐Ÿ™‚

This would be a card which would be able to be produced in multiples fairly easily. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Next up, I have the card that might possibly be my favorite of this release. This card uses the new Springtime Smiles set. And naturally, it includes the oh so cutest little stamps. I had to use this little bunny tooshie because it’s too adorable!

For the card itself, I die cut and layered up lots of the TE Mini Slim goodies. I used the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets and theย  Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets to create these frames/layers.

I used the carrot to create a fun background, coloring those and the bunny in with Copic Markers.ย  One of my favorite parts of this card though is the inside where I used the Set the Scene-Grass stencil to create a little place to stamp this sweet sentiment. (Apparently I really like this sentiment because I didn’t even realize I used it twice til I had taken all my card photos–ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love nobunny butt you! Can’t even! ๐Ÿ™‚ To create this green grass, I used both Granny Smith and Cilantro.

I originally thought I’d just stamp the carrots in Candy Corn and Sweet Potato Pie to create a patterned background and then I ended up coloring in all the carrots with Copic Markers. Definitely a different look that I usually create just stamping in Oreo, but a fun change! Oh I also masked a frame around the stamping/coloring so I wouldn’t be outside the range of the Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets frame.

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Field Notes 2 Kit from Taylored Expressions!

Today is a lovely new release. This one follows on the heals of the previously release kits Field Notes. This is a smaller set, but just as delightful. It’s the Field Notes 2 Kit release today at Taylored Expressions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lori Craig has quite the knack for drawing up these lovely florals, a skill I don’t even remotely possess, even one iota! ๐Ÿ™‚

This new release is available at Taylored Expressions today! ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I really wanted to make a full bundle of flowers and tie it up with twine. The die that is included in the kit makes this so easily achievable and I just love that look. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used Karin Watercolor Markers to watercolor this in.

I used the Frame in Frame 2 to create a frame and then used the line stamps in this set to create a border. I love those sketched lines (I stamped in Mushroom) and I think I could those often for other cards o’ plenty too! ๐Ÿ™‚ These flowers are just so lovely! โค

I also used the little splatter stamp included on this set to fill in a little white space on this card. Love that little stamp and I am going to be using that A LOT! It’s a controlled splatter for when you need a little something.

Next up, I created a more “one layer” card with just two layers–wink wink. I stamped the lovely bundle off the corner of the card on both ends and then stamped this beautiful sentiment in the middle. I filled in a little blue watercolor with the Karin Markers again to create a wash.

After it was all set, I die cut the whole panel with the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets and stamped it with the Splatter Background stamp in Mushroom. Another stamp that will be used pretty much all the time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly, I wanted to use the mask that is included in the kit as well. I wanted to use it very simply and it worked out wonderfully. I highly recommend going this route if you are a little pinched for time. I enjoy the lovely look it creates very easily.

First I stamped the flower bundle, again off the corners of the cards. Then I sprayed the back of the mask with some Pixie Spray to hold it in place. After all that was set, I laid the patterned stencil over top (again pre sprayed with Pixie Spray) and blended on a few colors of ink over top.

Oddly, I used the same two sentiments again, but there are I believe four sentiments to choose from in the set. I do that a lot! ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the fonts on these sentiments. This card, I am not as super fond of, but I do think that it still turned out and I will be sending this–hopefully I need it no time soon though. โค

So many things you can do with this lovely Field Notes 2 Kit. Another big shout out to my friend Lori would created these flowers! So much talent! โค
